Dear recruiter, I'm not moving to some random overpriced urban jungle shithole to write code I can do from anywhere on the planet.
A multiplayer, drawing game from the idiot behind Coding Confessional.
Everything I know about postcards and Morse Code I learned in the military. Everything I know about REST webservices, Groovy, JSON, XML and other such bollocks, I stole from Stack Overflow. "Stack Overflow: Look for the Big Green Tick." [TM]
I use Bing for search, not because it's better, but because I hate how pretentious Google is.

I hate to find a project in a faded js framework that I somehow got to "fix"
I once shoved a hot dog (wrapped in a condom) up my ass to see if I was gay. Turns out I didn't like it.
